Video of World’s First Semi-Working Lightsaber

I wrote about the Spyder III laser from Wicked laser a few months ago.  It was getting all kinds of press because it was being compared to a working lightsaber.  Hell it even looked like a lightsaber, but it’s not your Uncle Vader’s lightsaber.  Well some YouTube channel has posted a live demo about the Spyder laser, and after seeing it in action I can say that it is definitely lightsaber like.  You’re not going to be able to lop people’s hands off, or burn through a blast door with the Spyder laser, but it’s still badass.

I don’t know why you’d need one unless you’re into blinding small children and burning holes into stuff, but I’m have tempted to grab one.  Once you watch the video you’ll see what I mean.  Honestly, I can’t believe these things are legal, and I’d say there’s a good chance that one day they’re not.  Especially after little Jimmy melts his retinas out after his Dad leaves his Spyder laser in the play room.  You’ve been really trying to think of a reason to get a Spyder Laser and burn stuff with it…
